Beautiful rooms & cleaned twice daily! Loved having a soaking tub, separate shower, TV & phone in bathroom. I got hotel earlier than expected & room was not ready. I had planned on having tea in Lobby Restaurant, but it was a little too early & hostess did not seem to grasp that I just wanted to get a table & wait for the tea. She seated me @table by the busing area. I ended up getting a glass of wine with fruit & cheese plate. My waiter apologized for where I was seated & even paid for the glass of wine when I explained I had asked to have the afternoon tea but was told it was not time. We did enjoy having the I-pod docking station & free Internet in our room. We were a party of 3 females & had looked forward to using the pool after checking site out, but it was closed our entire stay, 1 reason for not giving 5 stars. They had arranged with a nearby hotel to use their pool, but it was very cold & not very luxurious to have to go outside to another facility to swim. I tried the little restaurant attached to hotel for breakfast on my own the last day, it was superb & I look forward to taking my sister there on my next trip. (The only drawback to it was having to go outside to get to it. I had not worn a coat because I thought there was an entrance inside--they should make that clear in the hotel literature!). Would stay here again if I could afford to, but that probably won't happen unless Orbitz has another good deal!
